What better week for predictions than when the Atlanta Falcons travel down to Louisiana to play the much hated Saints. How do you think a group of Falcons fans will predict the game?
We hope there will be plenty of this.
I am a bit disappointed I am the only one who predicted the Saints will be kept under 14 points.
Offensively these teams are very similar in terms of production. Where the balance tips to the Falcons is on defense and in turnover margin. Because of the nature of the rivalry this will be a tight one.
My fantasy team would prefer big games from Matty Ice and Tony G., so I'll put out a hopeful prediction for the Falcons. Also hoping to see if last week's late surge of 'quizz is a sign of things to come. This would be the perfect game to use him.
I see this being a close game. Yes the Saints are terrible, but Drew Brees is 10-2 vs the Falcons. I think Matt Ryan will have his way with the defense, but without Spoon, Brees will keep it close. However, the Falcons are the better team.
Matt Ryan and company will prove too much for the weak Lofton-lead defense, with the aerial attack cutting through the Saints like a knife through warm butter. Mike Nolan will offer up the first resistance Falcons have given Drew Brees in years and never letting him get into rhythm.
